Weather week in Latvia: cloudy, rainy, dank and dark

This week, weather in Latvia will be mostly cloudy, with frequent rainfall and temperatures that are warm for the season but will feel cold due to the general dampness and darkness, forecasts threaten.

During the working week, the sun will rarely shine, most likely only on Thursday and Friday, when the otherwise persistent cloud cover will take a short toilet break after a long stint hanging around being tedious.

Frequent rainfall is expected in many places throughout the week, being heaviest in the eastern part of the country, while occasional sleet will provide a low-grade impersonation of the snow that is supposed to be everywhere at this time of year. However, nothing will settle on the ground other than an extensive system of puddles and perhaps the occasional impromptu rivulet.

Winds will drag themselves sluggishly from the south and southwest and will be slow to moderate, so fog and mist may form, too, further enhancing the general air of brooding gloom and dank decay with which anyone currently lacking sufficient serotonin or Vitamin D will be all too familiar.

The air temperature during the working week will be within the range of 0 to + 5 Celsius, descending below freezing on some nights as low as - 3 C.

Rain will continue its persistent ministrations next weekend, when it is likely to become slightly warmer with temperatures of up to + 8 C.

In summary: miserable.
